Jewel Follows Her Hidden Desire, Country Album

November 3, 2007 (7:51 am) GMT
For her sixth studio album, folk singer Jewel Kilcher will go country with the help of John Rich from Big & Rich.

Singer has picked up her guitar once again for a country-oriented album. The singer who leaned on mainstream sound in her fourth effort '', has just signed a deal with Nashville-based label, Valory Music Company.

Country music apparently has been a hidden desire for Jewel who admitted that her last label was "always scared of country music". She told Billboard.com, "If I had been discovered now, living in my car in San Diego, I think I would have been signed as a country act. As a singer/songwriter and as a storyteller, I'm old fashioned."

In fact, she has infused herself to this genre long enough for people to discover. "I've always had country songs on my records," she revealed. The 33-year-old singer is also slated to present an award in Country Music Association Awards that will take place November 7 at Nashville's Sommet Center.

Among the collaborators in her Spring album is John Rich from the country duo who is also helping to depart from pop to country. A song that has made the cut would be 'Perfectly Clear' which she has played several times during concert but never had the chance to record it.
